I gave away all my tapes this past year. It was kind of like cutting my ponytail after 20 years, anti-climatic but liberating.

Oh, Man-
Cutting off my hair was a shock. I tried to donate it, and most places I went to didn't know what I was talking about. I did find a place that wanted to charge me $100 to perform my "hippie makeover"! I think I literally laughed in their faces as I turned to leave. The pretty woman who finally did it reminded me, "it's how long your hair is on the inside that matters more than how long it is on the outside". That helped.
I was amused by which anonymous dudes on the street quit talking to me as we crossed paths. They didn't recognize me or wouldn't talk to a newly "de-freaked" person. I'm used to it now.
